1. Salsa-News on CD

The label Envidia/ Lujuria has released some interesting new CDs for Salsa fans, and this time not only from Cuba, but also New York / Puerto Rican style:

Varios: N.Y. Salsa Club

Great compilation with Don Perignon, El Gran Combo, Costa Brava, Victor Manuelle, Orquesta La Fuga, Pedro Brull, Oscar d'Leon and many more.

Maikel Blanco: Me olvidé quien era

Maikel Blanco is Cuban and he has produced this fresh, crispy and danceable salsa/ timba CD.

Don Perignon: Aquí sí que hay

Salsa Puertoriqueña just like it should be: excellent arrangements and great musicians like for example Jr. González, Rico Walker und Wicky González.

Michel Maza: Como gato de angora

Well this CD is not really presenting music for cuddly little kitties (like the title suggests). Michel Maza used to play with Charanga Habanera where he learned the most important salsa lessons, which has lead to three solo albums already. Cuba is calling!

And there are more news, for example by Victor Manuelle, Luis Miguel and NG 2.

2. Carlos Quilici y su Quinteto Los Tauras: Gauchita Sueca

Carlos Quilici (bandoneón), Victor Parma (piano), Carlos Gantus (electric guitar), Guillermo Trobbiani (double bass), Simón Lagier (violin), Javier Gómez (violin) and Ricardo Paradiso (voice) participate in this recording. Carlos Quilici and his Quinteto Los Tauras play compositions by Astor Piazzolla, Pedro Laurenz and Osvaldo Pugliese as well as their own compositions. Only 3 of the 14 titles are with vocals. Following “Rasgo” (2000) and “Bailamos” (2003) this is the third recording by the Argentinian musicians and again they manage to play danceable tango tunes in a small line-up.
